Angel Food Pineapple-Orange Cake


I was intrigued by the recipes online for angel food cake mix, combined with a can of pineapple so I thought why not give it a try for a nice light dessert at our family dinner last night. The results were great, it is a nice light fruity cake. This would make a nice light Easter dinner dessert, and I think it would be absolutely perfect for summer cook-outs.


  • 1 – 450g package of Duncan Hines Angel Food Premium Cake Mix
  • 1 – 398 ml (14 fl oz) can of crushed pineapple
  • 1 orange (zest of 1 orange and 1/4 of freshly squeezed juice)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and coat a 9 x 13 baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Combine the contents of the cake mix with the can of crushed pineapple, and the orange juice and zest. Fold in gently, do not overmix.
  3. Pour the batter into the baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes until lightly golden and a toothpick in the middle comes out clean. Let cool completely.
  4. Cut out squares of cake and top with some whipped cream, and anything else you desire (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, shredded coconut, etc.)
